Rainy days but if you ignore it the quality of light you can find is exemplary often bordering on unique.

They can seem few these days,
but ordinary days are like the wheels in the machine of life improving. That seems vivid in this era. In the quest of days the extraordinary and the not ordinary wash over us. Ordinary days are rare moments of being.
Watching Forrest Gump instead of the noisy hockey game.

As we drew near it became more enormous
and passing under it in awe was a great relief
like driving under the Ambassador Bridge in volatile fog
…then less than a minute later slaughtered with violent rain
Chatham area on 401 had rarely seemed so pretty

There’s no question the cormorants have more in mind than just taking over Leslie Spit
There’s got to be a million of them. Their densely packed areas
say nothing of the vast numbers in mile wide V’s coming across the lake
as they scope new areas. The Canada Geese do look a bit besieged compared.
Also was glad to see the Cedar Waxwing Avant Garde the alien bird
Love CWW’s because they relate to me as an equal
I’m still interpreting their power but still haven’t seen a frightened one
Robins are so robust and sparrows and starlings are here for the long run
mile long cormorant V
even the mallards are like wtf with the cormorants
Took two photos to get the whole line
and the lines were coming in every 70 seconds
to the crowded scene
Time to google how did people handle cormorants back where they come from
also saw a mink of bowevil who looked tired and dehyddrated
and a mockingbird

It was actually awesomely spectacular on the lake and island in this weather.
The birds swarmed the land in the lake. Like Vancouver, 7 weather occurances visible at all times.
You could watch rain falling in 7 different places and see
areas of sunshine and blue skies, and plan short journeys.
I miss that multiweather from Vancouver.
You are given the best experiences of your life
knowing there will always be other kinds of days
until there’s none at all, but jeepers, be happy for the good ones.
We even discussed God, while bicycling.
I was so happy.
I compared the question to a thing on the radio, a scientist talking about the minds of octopus and the approximate reality that there’s no way human beings can know what octopi are thinking with those large brains all directly connected to the extremities nervous system
a completely different thinking,
that it would be that and then some to imagine the mind of
the whichever superdeity and there’d be no way of having a clue
just like an octopus. So people should think for themselves
learn everything they can and come to their beliefs
about what is true. Like this miniature cow from India does.

This afternoon’s snow seemed like a spirit messsage
far more so than “snow”
It seemed like an aestheticized christening of the yard
The silent gentle and pictoral snow
just laid itself in at the time on Sundays
when people are 75% napping and seminapping
even as they do what they do,
relaxing and basking in whatever is
Some might be watching a movie about Klimt
and almost living it at the same time
Not to overly complicate this,
all it was was pretty snow
and enhanced by the creativity of the people at the back of the building when it comes to the back yard

you’d almost think it meant something
when all of your going concerns suddenly reflected one day.
I won’t do chronological order this day
one has to go with feeling.
First off, seeing one of the gemcat descendents looking so healthy
and even more refined in tiny bear like ways
then a hawk over the bus stop, but a hawk I’m not familiar with
Crows doing their thing, sparrows obviously, the home team,
and canada/american geese that like fried rice a lot
temporally aschew but all part of this day

Today started with thick snow and now it is night
and raining. Winter is ending, truly, this time.
Kind of grizzly way for it to kind of squeeze out the most
bone blending damp chill it could come up with really.
But I feel great. Timely combination of heat rub and aloe cream
and the true holy spirit that is love for the beings of the sky.
